Justification

The project meets Montgomery County's water quality goals, Chapter 19, Article IV of the Montgomery County Code: to protect, maintain, and restore high quality chemical, physical, and biological conditions in the waters of the State in the County. This project is also supported by the Countywide Stream Protection Strategy, Comprehensive Watershed Inventories, and Parks' Phase II NPDES MS4 Permit commitments.

Other

The Montgomery Parks Department of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) and the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) have agreed that M-NCPPC will serve as the lead agency for implementing stream restoration projects including long term monitoring and maintenance, that are located wholly or mostly on parkland, and will implement the following additional stream restoration projects in the FY 19-24 CIP through this project; Clearspring Manor, Glenallan, Stoneybrook (Beach Drive to Montrose Avenue), and Grosvenor (Beach Drive to Rockville Pike). Previously, DEP had begun design work on these streams segments which are located predominantly on parkland. In FY18, DEP will provide all design work for these projects to M-NCPPC for design completion, permitting, and construction. M-NCPPC has agreed that all MS4 credits generated from these projects will be credited to the County's future MS4 permit and M-NCPPC must deliver the restored impervious acres no later than Dec. 31, 2023. M-NCPPC will provide appropriate updates at key project milestones to ensure that impervious acreage credits are achieved in the timeframe required, in addition to providing the long-term monitoring and maintenance required for the County to maintain the impervious acreage credit. These projects are currently estimated to have a combined cost of $2.4M, providing approximately 44 acres of credit. M-NCPPC will utilize its resources for completing design/permitting. M-NCPPC will provide updated schedule and cost information on all projects within FY19 for construction funding allocation from this project beginning in FY20, based on MDE's Water Quality Revolving Loan Fund (WQRLF) cycle timeframes. M-NCPPC and DEP will immediately begin working on an MOU detailing how projects completed by Parks, funded with WQPF dollars, with MS4 credits going to the DEP will be handled. M-NCPPC will document all MS4 credits created through these projects in accordance with MDE requirements to obtain State approval for the Permit credits. M-NCPPC will continue to identify future stream restoration projects throughout the Stream Valley Park system through inter-agency collaboration that provide ecological benefit, infrastructure protection, MS4 credits, and other watershed benefits for future implementation. M-NCPPC recognizes that stream restoration projects with relatively small segments on Park property may be selected by the County's contractor. If selected by the County's contractor and approved by DEP with concurrence from Parks, the County's contractor will need to obtain a Park Permit and comply with all M-NCPPC requirements.
